Few of us share all of our innermost thoughts with those nearest and dearest to us. If we did they’d likely think us mad, as everybody is prone to thinking weird and wonderful things every now and then.
These random ramblings swill around in our heads looking for the nearest exit. But unless we spill the beans to someone, somewhere, they remain roving about in perpetuity, which surely isn’t good for our overcrowded minds.
However, there is a solution… share those innermost thoughts with strangers on the Internets. These people all did just that, and you could do too.
WriteTube [No Longer Available]
WriteTube is the website making this possible, and it works because the premise and process are both very simple. To access the site you simply post one of your thoughts onto the site anonymously. Your reward for doing so is the chance to see a selection of other people’s anonymous thoughts, presented entirely at random.
It’s an addictive entity, as you always want to see what’s going to come up next. As you’ll see below, the thoughts people post to WriteTube come in the form of inspirational quotes, jokes, poems, or absolute gobbledygook. There is even the odd life lesson which will stay with you long after you close your Web browser.
Go on, admit it, there is at least one Google search you’d be embarrassed about were it to become common knowledge. It’s OK, you can confide in us, we’re all friends here.
It’s true, and we have the Internet to thank/blame for this change of mindset.
I’m not sure what to do with this information. Should we call the authorities? Assume this is some kind of copy pasta? Or wish him well in his new life in Antarctica?
An obsession with ice cream isn’t particularly interesting, and it certainly isn’t rare. But this post struck a chord due to the confusion between “desert” and “dessert.” Remember, folks, typos always matter, even online.
Damn. That’s deep stuff. But what if this post is itself a conspiracy theory designed to make us start believing all of the other conspiracy theories even though they’re all complete bunkum?! Mind blown.
To which I say, “That is no way to live. Be yourself and the people who like you for who you are will stick around.”
Well, no, there is something out there. This post is something, even if it’s just the same phrase repeated three times over in order to hit the minimum word count.
It’s not an empty life, per se, but it might be a rather wasted one. Still, everybody needs a hobby, even if it is watching pornography.
The geek in me finds this extremely cool. The other part of me thinks otherwise.
So many questions, the first of which is, what kind of love is “red?” This post does demonstrate the problem with WriteTube though: there is no chance to follow up with further questions.
So, you can walk sideways, good for you. But do you have eyes on stalks and brutal pincers too? I didn’t think so. Next!
Imagining anyone being eaten alive by ants, no matter how much you hate them, is messed up. But not nearly as messed up as that spelling of “computers.”
N8 did gr8, and we congratul8 him. That isn’t annoying at all.
We see what you did there. Nice wordplay! There is an element of truth there too, with the people leading the revolutions usually placing themselves in charge after it’s all over. Oh, the irony.
Evolution means they may will share the same common ancestor, but we advise against describing horses as “giant quadrupedal chickens,” at least in polite company.
That IS rather sad, actually. However, it doesn’t have to be so, and the ubiquitousness of social networks combined with the fact nothing ever really gets deleted from the Internet means our generation has a better chance of being remembered in the future.
That is one cute cat. I mean, it’s a cute minimalist cat, for sure, but it’s a cute cat nonetheless.
There may well be, and they may be reading this right now. But then we’re sure there are also vegans reading this who would like nothing more than to slap carnivores across the face with a slab of tofu. So there.
I admit it, that’s enough to give me nightmares. But there must be a shorter horror story out there waiting to be told. If you know it, please tell it to us as we like being scared occasionally.
What WriteTube Ramblings Did You Get?
So, now that you’ve read 20 of the innermost thoughts we were presented with when we visited WriteTube, it’s time to head over there to discover more for yourself. After adding your own contribution to the site, naturally.
We want to know what strange scribblings were passed on to you, so please share them in the comments section below along with your thoughts on WriteTube.
